I have a couple of fittings with 3x E14 bulbs in each. Each of the fittings is labelled with a max of 4w for LED.
Problem is, I’d like to upgrade to Philips Hue, which only offer 6w.
I didn’t spot this until I’d already replaced them all, so I switched it on briefly anyway (risk-taker that I am) and all seemed well, despite overall load being 6w more than the theoretical max.
So, what’s the risk of leaving them plugged in? Shortened life of the fixture? Issues with my electrics more generally? Circuit being tripped periodically? House burning down?
Any advice appreciated!
